What We Think

For over a decade, the K Custom Hybrid series brought innovation to the K line. The Hybrid design brings a new versatility both to the bright and dark side of the sound. The unlathed inner half of the cymbal delivers projection and focus while the lathed outer half creates swinging dynamics and wash-like crash capabilities. The K Custom Hybrid bridges the gap between the A and K lines with style and sound. Whether you are a live player or a session player, the K Custom Hybrid will add new dimension to your playing.

Manufacturer's Description from Zildjian

Developed in conjunction with leading drum stylist Akira Jimbo, the Zildjian K Kustom Hybrid Crash cymbal features an innovative brilliant/traditional surface that produces different tones depending on where the cymbal is played for a musical "darkness with brilliance" combination. The inner half features the unlathed, brilliant finish of the K Custom Ride, while the outer half features the traditionally finished K Zildjian lathing. The unlathed section helps control the wash and sustain, making it ideal for recording and live situations.

The relatively thin design of the crash results in a very responsive quality. It opens up quickly but still has the ability to project loudly and cut into dense mixes due to the unlathed bell.
